This world is full of unsolved mysteries.
Who built Stonehenge?
Was there really a Lost City of Atlantis?
Is the world going to be inhabited by aliens in the next century?
Where did the Don Draper we all know and love disappear to during the last season of Mad Men?
And what ever happened with those ruffled drop cloth curtains?
I know it’s been a cliffhanger.
Exciting and drawn-out anticipation.
Plenty of sleepless nights and hair-raising consternation.
Weeks of mystery and intrigue and unanswered questions.
Will she keep the ruffle?
Will she will she add one ruffle or two?
Will she ever iron those drop cloths and cut those hanging strings?
I know….I understand.
It’s scintillating content like this that’s kept you on the edge of your seat.
And in the end?
Just drop cloths.
Plain ordinary ruffleless drop cloths.
I intended to make them.
You see a friend made a suggestion.
She suggested ruffling the drop cloth ruffles with dental floss.
I was 10 yards of extra-strength Oral B away from an amazing drop cloth ruffle.
But in the end I just went old school with plain drop cloth curtains.
Maybe one day.
Maybe I’ll be adventurous and carefree and throw caution to the wind and decide that ruffled drop cloth curtains are so 2013 and whip out a container of dental floss and sew my way to a ruffleful existence.
Maybe Don Draper will dump Megan and figure out how to run Sterling Draper Cooper Pryce without Pete Campbell.
Stranger things have happened…..
….just ask all those aliens applying for travel visas
